Talks/Workshops :

Sat 15th Sept : Basic Pranayama (breathwork )

This class will introduce current yoga students to some basic pranayama techniques.  Pranayama, the 4th limb in Patanjali’s Ashtanga Yoga system, is a practice of energy management and elongation in the body.  Patanjali says that the regular practice of pranayama reduces the obstacles that inhibit clear perception. With this practice, the mind is prepared for the process of direction toward a chosen goal.  Come experience a little clarity!

These exercises are safe for anyone to do, but some prior yoga experience will be helpful.

Sun 16th Sept : Intro to Ayurveda

This introductory session will focus on basic principles of ayurveda, the ancient science of self-healing, and how they can support your health and well-being.

Ayurveda is the oldest system of medicine known to mankind. With origins in India, and a sister science to Yoga, Ayurveda seeks to optimize the health of the body, mind and spirit by creating a balanced relationship to nature and the elements. In our ever-busy and increasingly stressful world, this class will encourage you to reconnect with our natural environment and rhythms and will provide you with an opportunity to slow down and check in with yourself. You will come away with a basic understanding of our inherent relationship to universal energies and some practical daily routine strategies to antidote the effects of imbalance.

“Sarah Hatcher says, ‘I met Christine in 2004 when she came to Bozeman, Montana for a workshop. I liked her expert instruction and knowledge of breath and bandha; her teachings made a huge impact on how I continued to practice no matter what was going on in my life. Christine was the first person to share with me that practice was about breathing and moving; finding ease and meditation in the smallest or biggest of practices: it didn’t need to be big to be special.
I furthered my studies with Christine and travelled to Vermont two years in a row (2007 and 2008) to study with her and Nancy Gilgoff during their annual primary and intermediate adjustment clinics. Christine welcomed me into her home and cared for me like a sister.
When I went to Mysore in 2008, Christine was there as well and having her there studying and practicing made my trip even sweeter.
Christine to this day is a great mentor to me on health and diet, practice and lifestyle and most importantly, she is a dear friend. During my pregnancy with Dashiel and post part I’m, Christine guided me on diet and wellness making sure I took care of myself during that time.
Don’t miss a great opportunity to study with one of Guruji’s beloved students (Authorised Level 1) and Ayurvedic specialist. I’ll be there assisting her, see you then!’”

Saturday 8th April 2017
Eddie Stern
Led Primary Class and Lecture

An amazing opportunity to practice and learn with Eddie, an educated, practiced and wise yogi !

8am- 10am      Led Primary Class £30

10.30am – 12   Lecture £30

Lecture : Yoga and the Nervous System

According to the earliest references of Yoga in the Upanishads, the purpose of yoga is to steady the sense organs, and move our awareness inwards towards Self-knowledge, rather than towards the ever enticing and changing objects of the world. In this lecture we will look at an overview of the presentation of the nadis, the different types of nerves, according to Yogis, and their corollary systems according to Western medicine. These two complementary systems are very important for maintaining health, homeostasis, our ability to listen and communicate well with others, and find a sense of peace within our own nervous system. The lectures lead toward an understanding of how some of the most inner benefits of asanas, pranayama, and chanting are actually activating our nervous system in profound ways.

Eddie Stern is an Ashtanga Yoga teacher, author, and lecturer. He lives in Brooklyn, New York.

Basics of Ashtanga Yoga

The next workshop like this past one will be in mid January…date to follow.

Saturday 24th October, 1.30pm-3.30pm, £15
We will go through the basics of the practise; breathing and concentration, the sun salutations A and B, the first few fundamental standing postures, seated postures and finishing postures. We will also cover some of the theory/history of Ashtanga yoga.

This is a good way to add to and deepen understanding of Ashtanga yoga whether you have been practising for months and years, or if you are new to Ashtanga yoga taught in the traditional method and wish to learn. It’s important to keep come back to the roots of this practise!
